't explain the law very well. the u.s. government cannot randomly target american citizens on u.s. soil or anywhere else. if mr. paul wants to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up more than impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. he needs to know what he's talking about." >> here's the response, erin. that editorial goes on to say that they can't target americans, unless we designate them as enemy combatants, which begs the question, who gets to make the judgment who's an enemy combatant and who's not? who gets to make the judgment, oh, he's associated with terrorists. if you write an e-mail to your cousin in lebanon and they might be a terrorist or they might have friends who are terrorists, somehow, you are without getting a trial by jury. these are the same two senators that argued in favor of indefinite detention, which means, and i asked senator mccain this directly, i said, does this mean you could take an american citizen, without a trial, and send them to guantanamo bay for the rest of their life, without ever charging t
, even though federal law still says it's illegal. the search for a pot czar, though, continues and there we go again, high interest in the position. >> dude! i love washington. >> reporter: where's my czar? as in marijuana consultant. in washington state after seminars and a lengthy search, they still haven't hired a marijuana advisor because they have been swamped with qualified applicants. the state liquor control board says it received 98 bids to become the consultant on implementing washington's landmark legalization of pot initiative 502. entrepreneurs are waiting for guidance. donte jones wants his business, green ambrosia, to become a 5200 square foot marijuana superstore. for now, jones sells only to customers with medical prescriptions. deadhead og, critical cush and amnesia haze. sales for recreational use become legal at the end of this year as a result of the ballot proposal's passage. >> the change in public perception since that november vote has been just dramatic. >> reporter: the marijuana consultant, law degree preferred, will advise on growing, transporting a
and that if we needed to deal with the terrorist threat in the united states, we would use local law enforcement or the fbi or other means to deal with the threat. >> let me play what the attorney general had to say. senator paul said i'm not going to halt the nomination if i get a detect answer. eric holder did during a senate he hearing this morning. here is what the attorney general said. >> what i said in the letter was that the government has no intention to carry out any drone strikes in the united states. it's hard for me to imagine a situation in which that would occur. we have within the united states, the ability to use our law enforcement capacity. the use of drones is from my perspective, something that is entirely, entirely hypothetical. >> entirely hypothetical and hard for me to imagine. i understand the point those seem to say no, but it's not a one word answer. >> i'm glad to hear from tommy that the president has ruled this out. i was almost relieved to hear he said later in the hering he thought the use of a drone would be inappropriate. we don't know if the obama administrati
. >> okay. and what happened to the house? >> uh, the bedroom floor just collapsed and my brother-in-law is in there. he's underneath the house. >> okay. hold on one second. let me connect you to ems, okay? >> okay. >> now, the first responders -- the first responders that got here, the first responder that actually got into the house pulled jeremy out, the brother, because he was down there with a shovel trying to dig his brother out. pulled him out. they got everybody else out of the house and it was immediately deemed unsafe. erin, no one has been back inside since. >> john, i know that there are -- there's been sinkholes in many places around this country, but also in the state of florida. you've covered stories like this before. but how extraordinary is this situation? >> reporter: this one is very extraordinary for a couple of reasons. yeah, there are sinkholes all over. florida is built on literally 3,000 feet of limestone, which at any time can become very permeable and then a sinkhole can open up. what's happened here is they had a collapse, then another collapse. the walls are
, and my brother-in-law is underneath the house. >> just one second. let me connect you with the ems. >> difficult to imagine what they were going through. underneath the house, jeff bush. jeff's brother jeremy, who narrowly escaped the sink hole himself, leapt into the hole, digging at the sand and wreckage. he kept digging. he said he heard his brother's voice calling out from somewhere, buried in the sinkhole. he kept digging until police pulled him out because the floors are threatening to give way. jeff bush is presumed dead, but jeremy is not giving up hope. to say he wishes he was back in the hole digging for his brother would be an understatement. we spoke to him earlier at the scene. i'm so sorry for what you're going through. i cannot imagine how difficult this must be for you, for your entire family. can you walk us through last night? you had just gotten home from work. what happened? >> i just got home from work. me and my wife, my father-in-law and my 2-year-old daughter went to somewhere to get something to eat. came back home. told my brother, knocked on my brother's
happened to be osama bin laden's son-in-law pleaded not guilty today in a federal courtroom here in new york. he was accused of plotting to killing americans. he was arrested last week in jordan. osama bin laden counted his son-in-law as part of his inner circle. u.s. officials say he was tapped as al qaeda's spokesman after the september 11th attacks. in other words, he was a big catch back then, or so it would seem. the decision to handle his case in the civilian court has reignited a bitter debate. two journalists who have ever interviewed bin laden are here. peter, what do you make of this? is this really a big catch? >> this is a guy who made a poor marital choice, which was marrying one of bin laden's daughters. as a result of which he was part of a bin laden inner circle, but he's a propagandist. he's -- you know, even the indictment itself doesn't mention any actual terror plot he was involved in. john will also remember he kind of -- there was a period where he was somewhat public in the late '01, early 2002 time period and then he disappeared from sight because he wasn't that
told me about the mental health laws in your state in idaho. you said, you talked about this emotionally awful time when your husband had to press criminal charges in order to get your son put in a mental institution for his health, for your safety. but he could only stay in that institution at the time for 10 to 14 days. what changes are needed? that, to me, seemed so shocking and so difficult for you as a parent. >> right. and i know that our state isn't alone here in idaho in dealing with mental illness and mental disorders through the juvenile justice system. in many cases, there's really just a gap between an acute care facility like the one my son visited and jail. there just aren't a lot of options. i will say in defense of idaho that advocacy again proved very powerful in our case, and the state's been very forthcoming in providing services for my son. >> the hartford current and pbs had put together a documentary for frontline on adam lanlza and his mother nancy, the first person he killed on that horrific day. various people have told the current reporters that
